My passion is working with self-awareness and supporting people to know more about themselves and their path in life. Life can some times hit us hard, and knowing how to manage and maintain meaning and purpose can seem difficult. Counselling can support you to find ways to live more easily when things are difficult and on a longer term level you can use counselling or therapy to live a life that may have richer meaning and purpose.

    My practice is largely based on Process Oriented Psychology as developed by Dr Arnold Mindell. I have studied this model for the past ten years within Australia and Internationally. I find this model helpful, as it is about trusting the knowledge and wisdom that you already have about yourself and your needs. It offers an approach that makes me a facilitator supporting your awareness to develop to know what is exactly right for you.

      10 Questions with Bronwyn Hill

      • What led you to choose psychotherapy or counselling as a profession?

      • Through my own personal journey I have found psychotherapy to be the most powerful change agent! Psychotherapy has within it the ability to transform our lives and support us to develop deep awareness of our selves. In our current world there is little time or space to be with ourselves. We have a culture that requires alot. Working long hours, family demands, cultural expectations can disconnect us from ourselves. Psychotherapy is a way to reconnect and check in that your life is moving in a way that is fulfilling and meaningful.
      • Which philosophical approaches have influenced your professional/personal development?

      • My biggest influence is process oriented psychology as developed by Arny and Amy Mindell. Process Oriented Psychology approaches with curiousity the things that appear the most scariest or disturbing, with facilitation and support we often find that these are the things actually hold a message for us that can enrich our lives. This model also supports us to develop our own awareness and meditation skills so that outside of the therapy room we can work with ourselves to create change when things are difficult.
      • Which particular aspects of health or the human journey are you interested in?

      • I am interested in all of life! We are all in this soup together and I believe that we are deeply connected. I love working with relationship issues and couples.
        I have a background in working with death, dying, grief and loss, sexuality and gender, abuse and trauma and womens health.
      • What method/s do you use?

      • I use a range of methods, and am guided by the client in regards to which is the best way. From talking and discussion to using creative methods such as drawing, movement and role play.
      • When do you think the client will start to feel that progress is being made?

      • Depending on what the person is presenting with, I feel generally within the first couple of sessions. This is something I always like to discuss with the person their expectations and hopes for the therapy, and check in on how it is progressing.
      • How has therapy made you a better person?

      • Therapy has made me much clearer on knowing what is right for me, and given me the support and strategies to make practical changes in my life to meet my goals. Therapy has made it easier for me to have the relationships I want and it has helped me sort out difficult issues in relationships that before I would have found too difficult. Therapy has helped me develop a compassion and understanding of the challenges of being human in our current society. It has connected me to my dreams and helped me understand them in a way that translates to every day life.
      • What do you like most about being a therapist?

      • The opportunity to meet so many interesting people. The honour to assist in faciltating around areas that can be very sensitive and raw. Watching people as they find their own wisdom and knowledge that can guide them to feel more fulfilled and happy. Having the chance to sit and be with someone as they explore vast and fascinating areas of the self that they previously were not aware of. I just really love people and its an honour to be able to meet with people and share life's journey. I feel very lucky in my job!
      • Do you ever have 'bad hair' days?

      • Often!! I am learning to welcome the 'bad hair' days as a chance to know myself more and also to learn how to really care for myself on those days. I use the process oriented inner work or meditation to sometimes help me on those days, and other days I just have a bad hair day and thats that!! ;--)
      • What do you think is the most significant problem we face, in the world today?

      • Disconnection from our self. I really believe the broader global issues are related to an inner disconnect. I believe that through re-connecting with our selves we find sustainable ways for change and to help solve so many of the issues in the world today.
      • Can you share the name of a book, film, song, event or work of art that inspires you?

      • Dance of the Ancient One - Arnold Mindell's latest book.

      Clinical Social Worker, Process Oriented Therapist

      My practice is "Borders Counselling," based on the border of QLD and NSW. I am fascinated with working with the borders in ourselves and through investigation finding ways to navigate what can feel like tricky internal ground! Through my training, I have come to know, that everything we need we already have inside of us. However, some times we need support to find those inner resources and facilitation to help increase our awareness, to know what is truly right for us. ...
